Overview

About the property

This Five Bedroom Home Is Steps Away From Downtown Victoria With Free Parking!

This well-appointed home is walking distance to downtown Victoria, the Inner Harbour, Craigdarroch Castle, Victoria Art Gallery and a lovely stroll to Cook Street Village and the beach. We are central and convenient to all downtown amenities.

The house boasts 3000 sq ft of comfortable west coast living over three storeys and five bedrooms.

The main floor has the two bedrooms (queen beds) and a sunny open-concept living space with a kitchen, sun room, dining room and living room with electric fireplace and a huge skylight. This floor is ideal for visiting, relaxing, watching TV and cooking big meals. Our kitchen is stocked with everything one would need and the dining room table has many leaves to seat up to ten people.

The top floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed plus ensuite with tub. It has two skylights and a calm and peaceful feel to it. There is a collapsible playpen available for use. It is very private from the rest of the house.

The lower floor is a 1.5 bedroom self-contained suite. It has a full kitchen and bathroom (standing shower), TV and laundry. There is a queen size bed in the main room and a double bed in the small bedroom. There is also a double pullout sofa in the living room.This small bedroom has an access door to the back patio, so perfect for smokers or someone coming and going late at night. This lower suite has 6’4” ceilings with 6" beams (guests should be under 5'10" staying down here) and laminate flooring. It sleeps four plus pullout sofa.

There is a wonderful sun room that catches afternoon and evening sun. There are two rocking chairs plus two twin beds. This is the best room for sleeping during fair-weather months, but it isn't insulated so there isn't any heat. There are also some kids toys. If we approve you bringing your dog, this is where they'd be sleeping.

The backyard is private and is equipped with a Webber BBQ, a fire pit and a patio plus chairs for lounging. This is ideal for large gatherings and has been very well-reviewed.

We accept most pets but he/she must stay outside or in the sun room. The backyard is fenced. We have a huge school field beside us, great for walking the pooch (or the kids!). Please let us know about your pet (size, temperament, shedding) if you would like to bring them and know it's an additional non-refundable pet fee.

Wireless internet, laundry, four car driveway (five in a pinch), very clean, ideal location for those wanting to be close to all the amenities. Private backyard for sunny afternoons and relaxing. Bus stop across the street.

It is not only a great vacation spot, it can also be a comfortable temporary home for those on the road. Perfect for longer stays and entertaining.

Perks:

Great space for some music, BBQ, privacy and central location.

We have a bike for your use (sometimes two bikes - please inquire).

Two bedrooms have separate entrances.

Very close to downtown Victoria.

Lots of board games (Scrabble, Twister, crib, etc)

Great family reunion home.

Huge kitchen (actually two kitchens) and well-equipped for big meals.

School playground right around the corner.

Beautiful neighborhood for walking/sightseeing.

Perfect for special events (stags, bachelorette parties).

We will consider pets, but please understand they must stay in the yard/sun room.

Please email me the dates requested and the number of guests and I will reply promptly with a quote, plus specifics.

About Megan Clark

I manage two vacation rental properties while studying at university. My parents own the house and they live up island with my sister and her family. I am in my thirties and have lived in Taiwan for eight years, Thailand for one year and here in beautiful Victoria for over fifteen years. I love this city and love recommending great day trips and more.

Megan Clark purchased this house in 2006

Why Megan Clark chose Victoria

We decided to buy this house because of its convenient downtown location and absolute charm of the house. Once you get here, you will know what I mean...

What makes this house unique

This house, and I know from personal experience, is ideal for family gatherings. The open-concept kitchen and living areas make it fun to cook meals while still enjoying everyone's company. The sun room makes for a great location to either read the morning paper in the rocking chair, have an afternoon nap on the day bed or let the kids play in a safe room. This main floor is great for visiting yet the bedroom have very heavy doors that give privacy and block the noise.

The master bedroom upstairs is also very private and a great get-away for the parents! It has an en-suite bathroom and great skylights that accent the attic-style ceiling. Great natural light and a super comfy king-size bed.

The additional lower suite adds another two beds, full bathroom and kitchen.

A perfect place for a large group. Ten of us got together for our annual book club getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house is old and full of character. Close to everything we needed. Clean and well equipped and especially cosy with lots of space for visiting! Megan was very thorough in showing us the charming quirks that is part of an old house. We would love to come again!

Great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I booked while in town for a wedding. The location could not be beat. We were able to walk to everything we needed (including the beautiful Victoria Harbor). The owner has maximized the sleeping space and bedrooms in the home, making it ideal for groups or families. Michelle was helpful and kind and very accommodating. Will definitely stay again!

Wonderful, room for all

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Megan's residence. There were five of us and we all had our own space to sleep. Three bathrooms, one on each floor, were well appointed and convenient. We loved being able to get up in the morning and fix coffee before we ventured out. The location was so convenient and within walking distance of many places in downtown Victoria. We would definitely stay here again.

A perfect wedding/family reunion spot.

  • 5 of 5

The bride's whole family stayed here when our daughter got married. It was great to hang out and catch up with all the out-of-town relatives. We had a get-together on the wedding eve in your beautiful backyard; barbequed, and relaxed by the fire pit. The house was very well stocked, even had condiments and groceries for things we forgot. Great location for walks downtown and around Victoria.

I suggest adding to your listing that the basement ceiling is low; we managed fine but there may be some families where everybody is tall and should be aware.

Thanks Megan and Gord!

Very comfortable, spacious home in good location

  • 5 of 5

As a party of 9, we had plenty of room when renting the entire house (the upstairs home and the downstairs MIL, connected to each other). We really enjoyed our stay. The house feels well-loved, well-appointed, and homey and is a great place to come back to after a walk to the downtown area or a whale watching trip. Victoria is a very nice town.
